I have Win XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3. I have downloaded MSN Messenger 2009 and can sign in just fine. However, even though all of my contacts show up, when I click on one of them to start a message, I am told that the contact is not online. I know this to be not true because I had a friend sign on last night and neither one of us have "active" contacts. Also, in the old Messenger, whenever a contact came online or I got an email, I would get a message telling me that someone had signed in or I had a new email. Now, I don't get this message. Is there some setting that I am missing? Or do I just need to forget Messenger and go for another IM service? Thank you.
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
